It’s official, I’m signed up for my first race. I haven’t trained, I have owned a cross bike for a whole week, and I figure cyclocross is the easiest discipline, so I’m probably headed for the podium.
But seriously, I couldn’t be more excited. I have always been intimidated by the racing scene, but you have to start somewhere. The atmosphere at cyclocross races seems to be pretty welcoming; the perfect mix of serious competition, and not serious rowdiness.
Hope to see you up at the course behind Lookout Mt. Youth Services tomorrow night for the last week of the Back to Basics Cyclocross Series. Root us on, and let’s hope I can achieve my goal of not getting DFL.
